Stork Taking 1 of 5

Painted Stork

Mycteria leucocephala


At last! I managed to get a bird in full flight, in reasonable focus and not as a silhoutte. This beautiful stork was following fixed routes from his nest to a dry tree to pickup twigs. It made it easy for me to follow his movements closely. Camera's highspeed focus also performed well this time.


I was also interested in catching him on his way to his nest to deliver the goods. I am happy I was able to do that. I felt great and Wright brothers must have felt the same when they first made a flight, I am sure.


For mor details on these birds, look up the photos next.
